Happy Spring! 

Spring is here and flowers are blooming everywhere we look! Make a plan to find local blooms and spend a day admiring the splendor of the flowers. Here's an idea, pack a picnic and enjoy a leisurely day at your local wilderness spaces. 

We've truly enjoyed seeing all your 52 Hike Challenge photos under the hashtags #52HikeChallenge2017 and #52HikeChallenge, thank you for sharing your journey with the community and keeping each other inspired!

We've been active since our last newsletter! We hiked Holy Jims Falls, where we realized we forgot out trekking poles, (watch our YouTube video about that adventure here.) We led our snow travel workshop in the beautiful Sierra Mountains and visited Manzanar National Historic Site. February's pop-up hike with Resilient Squad to Eagle Rock in Warner Springs, CA via the PCT had an awesome turnout. 

Karla also learned how to ski, and did a solo backpacking retreat in Joshua Tree. Meanwhile, Phillip headed to Mexico for his climb. We're currently on hike 12 of this year's 52 Hike Challenge!
- Happy Hiking, Karla and Phillip
